Letters to Ariel Sharon, Hero of Sabra and Shatilla, Prime Minister of Israel
@  Letter 1  22-May-2001 Honoring military heroism


"The same pattern, an initial denial, followed by apologies, and a final act of clemency and promotion, was applied after the first historically verifiable atrocity committed by Prime Minister Sharon.  It was at the Palestinian village of Qibya, where Sharon's unit dynamited houses with their inhabitants and massacred some 60 men, women and children.  After the murders became public, Prime Minister Ben Gurion, at first, blamed rogue Arab gangs.  When that did not wash, he blamed Arab Jews, who, he said, being Arabs by their mentality, committed the unauthorized wild raid of vengeance and killed the peasants.  For Sharon, it was the usual path of roses all the way to the post of Prime Minister.  It sometimes appears that to become the Prime Minister of Israel, it helps to have a massacre to your name."
